Augusta forecast calls for wind Friday, clear weekend


AUGUSTA, Ga. – In what is becoming a common theme this week, weather promises to be a big part of play on Friday at the Masters.

As Day 2 got under way, a cold wind whipped across the golf course promising to make the layout play more difficult than it did on Thursday, when the field managed a 73.368 scoring average.

The good news is that the chance of rain drops dramatically on Friday and the forecast is for a clear, cool weekend.
